Biography

Magnus "Mike" Goodman (March 18, 1898 – July 17, 1991) was a Canadian athlete. He was a member of the Winnipeg Falcons ice hockey team, who represented Canada at the 1920 Summer Olympics and won the gold medal.

Life

Goodman was born in 1898 to Icelandic immigrant parents. He distinguished himself in ice hockey as well as swimming and speed skating. As a young man he joined the Winnipeg Falcons, an amateur hockey team largely made up of Icelanders excluded from Winnipeg's other teams. His position was left wing. In 1920 the team won the Allan Cup and the right to represent Canada at the 1920 Summer Olympics, the first Olympic Games to feature hockey. The Falcons went on to defeat Sweden to win the gold medal. Goodman was known to carry his gold medal in his pocket at all times.

In 1938 he served as player-coach for the Coral Gables Seminoles of the Miami-based Tropical Hockey League, an early attempt to establish Hockey in the Southern United States. He died in Miami in 1991 at the age of 93, the last surviving member of the Winnipeg Falcons.
